  School Direct Teacher Training  
  Candidate Information  
  The School Direct Training Programme is the fee-paying route in to teaching and open to all graduates. It is funded by tuition fees paid by the trainee, who may receive a bursary from the Teaching Agency (TA). Applications are through UCAS.  
  This route requires no work experience (other than a minimum of 10 days in a school) and so often attracts trainees straight from university. This is the school-based alternative to a university PGCE. Fees, including the PGCE qualification, are £9000. You may however be able to claim a bursary (1):
